Republicans have total or partial control of 76% of the country's state legislatures. Wow. https://t.co/djJHy5fclV pic.twitter.com/lmhjx6cyax— Chris Cillizza (@TheFix) November 4, 2015
Best showing by Republicans since 1928.
In many ways, better. Democrats can no longer count on a "Solid South" -- a euphemism for the Confederacy. A half-century after the restoration of Civil Rights for black people (after the Supreme Court struck them down in 1883, Republicans finally took over Statehouses in the South for the first time since the Civil War's postwar Reconstruction Era.
Gee, Tea Party really hurt Republicans, didn't it?
That is due to the realization that the Democratic Party is really a socialist party. Following the end of the Cold War, Russia adopted capitalism and we pursued communism. It's daft.
Obamacare, with its broken promise of free health insurance, has crashed and burned in the public's opinion. Kentucky Democrats ran with it and lost the state on Tuesday.
Global warming, with its call to end carbon dioxide emissions, also crashed and burned as after 30 years of this junk science, the majority of Americans realize not a single prediction of gloom and doom has come true. Not one.
Obama also turned his promise of racial harmony into Ferguson.
On top of that, Obama's embrace of Bruce Jenner and Obama's DEMAND that boys in drag be allowed in girls bathrooms in schools has disgusted most people.
The media keeps saying Republicans are a white party that will die out.
Democrats are a crazy party that will go first.
Maybe both parties die and we finally elect people on their individual merit. Maybe we elect our wisest people directly to the Electoral College and they choose wiser presidents.
